Cadarn Bunkhouse, Felindre, Hay on Wye, Powys, Brecon Beacons, sleeps 9-57 in 10 bedrooms.

Cadarn Bunkhouse is an ideal venue for youth and school groups wishing to explore the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons, making the most of the outdoor activities on offer in this region known for adventure. Some of the best horse riding in the UK happens here and with an established riding centre on site, lessons, trail riding and hacking can be offered to all ages and abilities with small groups of no more than 8. Your pupils will not only have great fun on one of our holidays but they will also gain new skills such as learning to ride, taking responsibility for caring for their pony, becoming self reliant and increasing self confidence.

As an alternative activity, the River Wye is easily accessible for canoeing and there are providers and guides based locally who are experienced at working with youngsters. The area is also really popular with mountain bikers and if any members of your group require bike hire, this can be arranged.

In terms of accommodation, the centre is divided into 3 blocks. When we have large youth groups staying this is on a sole occupancy basis. There's flexible bunkhouse accommodation is available for up to 40 pupils and a separate bungalow for staff. There is also one free staff place for every 8 students.

Cadarn is fully DBS checked (enhanced) with first aid trained members of staff on site.
